Carroll County school board members have forwarded to Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. the names of three people they would like him to consider in filling a vacancy on the five-member panel.
Last week, board members interviewed 13 candidates who are seeking to fill the seat vacated by Laura K. Rhodes in July. A 14th candidate did not attend the interview session, and a 15th withdrew.
The board narrowed the field to Ellen Baker, who retired last school year as a history and social studies teacher at Francis Scott Key High in Union Bridge; Stephanie Dahlquist of Manchester, a retired English teacher at North Carroll High; and Patricia Gadberry of Sykesville, a longtime school system volunteer with three school-age children.
